Cliven Bundy's Indictment Charges Massive Conspiracy - UPDATED

The unsealed indictment lays out events in Nevada, and holds Bundy accountable for all of them.

Update:

Mr. Bundy will be in jail for at least another week. He also had the nerve to ask for a public defender, which the judge will not approve without seeing his financial statements first.

The indictment of Cliven Bundy is a masterful document, describing a conspiracy to defraud and harm the government for selfish reasons.

There's nothing in it we don't know, but it does give a glimpse into how far the investigation has delved, and the reach of the charges they intend to bring.

For all of Michele Fiore's gabble today about how they're "fighting the battle on new ground," all I can say is that they've conceded most of that ground by recording everything they do so there's no question about the laws they've broken.

Bundy is charged with Conspiracy to Commit An Offense Against the United States; Assault on a Federal Law Enforcement Officer; Use and Carry of a Firearm In Relation to a Crime of Violence; Obstruction of the Administration of Justice; Interference with Commerce by Extortion; and, Aiding and Abetting.

He'll be in the clink for the rest of his life after this trial, alongside his sons.
